Yellow Yellow Dirty Fellow

Chitra Gopalakrishnan & Swati Sharma step forward and propose a new idea of a country to the citizens of this war-torn, problem-ridden world (also welcoming Anvita Jain, aka Anvita "Jhang", our newest citizen). One, where the parameters are new, the mind is clear and where the air is fresh. So read on, to know our laws and to participate in this experiment where citizenship is a state of mind. Factfile: YYDF citizens are called DRKIs and they follow the teachings of the great DRR.

Fast Food

This image shows an audience at a comedy show on television. While this is being broadcasted, there's also the breaking news at the bottom of the tv about a young boy shooting himself to death.

This is a comment on how news broadcast is becoming more and more like fast food. So much information is being fed into our brains all the time leaving no time for registration and reaction leading to an emotional immunity towards the events taking place around the world.

There's another audience here, the one watching this on television, the reactions of which are left to our imagination. Are they laughing with the audience on screen, reacting to the news, or both?

Wet Talk

YYDF President Chitra has off-late been very concerned by water. She read something once which said 'If the wars of the past were over land, the wars of the future will be over water' (or something to that effect). Funny thing, coz you would think that with Uncle Sam in the middle-east, it would be over oil. Hell no, its a water war forecasted for us lucky ones.
Histories of civilizations are based on water and the politics involved in sharing it. And then there's the ecological and civil crisis related to dams on rivers (where do the displaced go, where do the animals n ecosystems go, where do the archeological sites and other cultural relics go? They're definitely going, for one thing).
So the President's head is abuzz with these issues. Which is why when the President visited a letterpress workshop in Portland, Maine, she ended up making these posters about it.
Its created with a mixture of lead-type and wood-type using giant old machines like the linotype, the handpress and the ludlow.

All text credited to Vandana Shiva's book 'Water Wars'(2002). And all inspiration credited to Arundhati Roy's 'Power Politics'(2001).

Let's get wet...

Nonsense time

YYDF is pleased to announce a time for everything, including a time for "nonsense". 6pm daily, all citizens and other particpants are allowed to switch off corporate branins and switch to power-saving mode, aka, nonsense mode (the same applies to citizens on other time zones, you may swithc on nonsense at 6 pm local time).
After years of research, YYDF has come to the conclusion that a few hours of "nonsense" will hep to refresh, rejuvenate and relax the brain from thinking too much about brand image, market value and end-consumers.
